Overview

Providing a clear explanation of the fundamental theory of time series analysis and forecasting, this book couples theory with applications of two popular statistical packages--SAS and SPSS. The text examines moving average, exponential smoothing, Census X-11 deseasonalization, ARIMA, intervention, transfer function, and autoregressive error models and has brief discussions of ARCH and GARCH models. The book features methods of combining forecasts, model and forecast evaluation, along with a sample size analysis for common time series models. To enhance the book's value as a teaching tool, the data sets and programs used in the book are made available on the Academic Press Web site. The careful linkage of the theoretical constructs with the practical considerations involved in utilizing the statistical package makes it easy for the user to properly apply these techniques.

Audience: Upper level undergraduate and graduate students, professors, and researchers studying: time series analysis and forecasting; longitudinal quantitative analysis; and quantitative policy analysis. Students, professors and researchers in the social sciences, business, management, operations research, engineering, and applied mathematics.
